GUN MANUFACTURERS SHOULD REFUSE TO SELL TO THIS IDIOT AND JERSEY CITY PD. ANY MANUFACTURER THAT SELL TO THEM SHOULD BE BOYCOTTED BY THE NATIONAL PUBLIC THAT IS PRO 2ND AMENDMENT. IN THE PROCESS BOYCOTT ANY BUSINESS THAT IS SITUATED IN JERSEY CITY.

SO HIS GRANDPARENTS AVOIDED THE GAS CHAMBERS AND SO THE REST ARE OF NO CONSEQUENCE? WHAT A COWARD. SOME RATHER NOTABLE BATTLES FOUGHT IN THE AREA SOME GUY NAMED WASHINGTON, IGNORES OUR HISTORY AND WORLD HISTORY.

Don't the people dragging out the World War 2 terminology realize that if fascism ever rises in America it's going to come precisely from the gun nuts? Do you really think the guys in the south with confederate flags and nazi memorabilia hanging over their weapons cache are going to save you from fascism? They are the fascists!

Why not pass a municipal ordinance requiring persons buying guns, from companies who do not respond to the mayor's suggested questionnaire in the way that the mayor approves of, wear a red or yellow star on their person and on the location where such guns are kept, thereby allowing innocent citizens to protect themselves and their children from these dangerous instrumentalities. I'm sure it can be argued that such a notice would be allowable under a locality's "police power".

Mayor Fulop's cowardly attitude towards self defense is a schonda, claimed by all kapo, quisling, informers.

Mayor Fulop would prefer to peacefully hand over his family to the Nazi's as oppossed to fighting back. I am sure the families that lost relatives would have a much different viewpoint.

Did you ask Obama about the illegal guns used in the fast and furious debacle? I am gusessing no.

The second amendment is an INTEGRAL part of our Constitution, just as is the first amendment and the 19th amendment giving women the vote, and if we can take one away, we can take the other away as well!

No idea if this is legally possible, but any sheriff who refuses to enforce any duly-adopted law should be impeached.

Take my guns, but leave my video games alone! Violent video games actually REDUCE real street violence rather than vice versa. I grew up in Brownsville in '50s and '60s and there was plenty of gangs and street violence long before video games.
